Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black to Adapt Graphic Novel 3 STORY: THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE GIANT MAN

     June 1, 2010

Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk) has signed on to write and direct an adaptation of the graphic novel 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man.  Written by Matt Kindt, 3 Story “is a modern fable, exploring the life of a giant man, Craig Pressgang, whose strange medical condition causes continuous growth. The tale is told from the point of view of three women — his mother, wife and daughter — and follows Craig’s journey from birth to his eventual three-story height. It also serves as an exploration of loneliness and love’s changing nature.”  According to Heat Vision, Black’s approach will focus on the father-daughter relationship and soften the melancholic ending.

Black recently made his directorial debut with the indie drama What’s Wrong With Virginia which stars Ed Harris, Emma Roberts, and Jennifer Connelly.  He also wrote the film’s script.  He’s also been hired to pen the screenplay for Clint Eastwood’s upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic, Hoover.
